The Art of Being a Slumlord

I’m sure this eye catching building on the edge of Chinatown in San Francisco gets photographed a lot. It’s a vibrant, interesting paint job. But what I noticed after scanning the details, the colorful characters and the hanging underwear, was that each crappy looking apartment is lit by the same cheap florescent garage lighting you can buy at home depot for under thirty dollars. Perhaps it’s a radical artist commune that agreed at a 6 hour meeting to spend the least possible on overhead lighting so that they could use the money for the revolution, but I’m guessing slumlord.
